The Government Accounting Office (GAO) issued a report yesterday declaring that the Pentagon broke two laws when it participated in the trade of five top Taliban commanders for a U.S. Army deserter named Bowe Bergdahl. The report stated that the Pentagon had ignored language in a law that is “clear and unambiguous” about how prisoner exchanges are to be handled.

A long time Democrat, Kirsten Powers, urges President Obama to end the deafening silence and callousness towards the genocide of the Christian community in Iraq. Powers, formerly an official in the Clinton administration, is now an on-air personality on Fox News, representing a liberal point of view. Like many in Congress and in the general American population, she cannot understand why the plight of the Yazidis so quickly provoked a response from the President, when the much larger population of Christians has suffered greater brutality for months, in the face of total silence and apathy on the part of the President.
“If there is one thing as surprising as the obliviousness of this President, it is the totality of that obliviousness. Truly, it seems as if there is no threat that has not managed to catch him utterly off-guard. And the sad reality is that his consistent inability to anticipate obvious danger has almost invariably led to the loss of innocent life on an massive and heartbreaking scale.
Two American aid flights have also made it to the mountain, where they have dropped off more than 36,000 meals and 7,000 gallons of drinking water to help the refugees, and last night two RAF C-130 transport planes were also on the way. However, Iraqi officials said that much of the US aid had been “useless” because it was dropped from 15,000ft without parachutes and exploded on impact.
ISIL militants have published video footage of executions, while fighters were also seen pulling down church crosses and burning manuscripts, as part of their self declared campaign to establish a strict Islamic state in areas of Iraq and Syria. ”At least 200,000 Christians are now thought to be fleeing towards the Iraqi Kurdistan region,” said aid group Barnabas Fund, which supports Christians in heavily Islamic nations. “Some of the displaced had already fled to the Nineveh plain from Mosul” which was taken by ISIL on June 10, Barnabas Fund told BosNewsLife.
Leading spokesman for religious freedom says President Obama will make no serious effort to defeat ISIL terrorists because they are Sunni. Chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition released a statement in which he quoted both the Wall Street Journal and Washington Times as admitting the royal family of Sunni Saudi Arabia would not permit the United States to defeat Sunni militants
Todd Starnes notes sarcastically: “Welcome to the age of enlightenment, Pastor Hogan – where the military can march in a gay pride parade, but they can’t hang out with six-year-olds at Vacation Bible School.” This is Obama’s “gay” military in action. Remember this: It was the Obama Administration and his wicked minions in Congress who rammed through a repeal of the ban on homosexuals serving openly in the military. As a result of this, military chaplains face persecution for teaching what the Bible clearly says about homosexuality.
Obama, our always vacationing or fundraising president, has just nominated Rabbi David Saperstein to become our U.S. Ambassador At Large for International Religious Freedom at the State Department. Saperstein, as one might expect, is an anti-religious freedom bigot and a pro-abortion zealot who runs the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism.
Will President Barack Obama sign into law Senator Roy Blunt’s bill promoting religious freedom in the Middle East which passed in both houses of Congress? The question arises as the President says nothing about the cleansing of Christians from Iraq by the ISIL
Barack Hussein Obama has been curiously silent about the plight of Christians in Iraq who are being tortured, killed and driven from their ancestral homes by the Islamic State terrorists.
While he was campaigning for the presidency in 2007, however, he was very vocal about the persecution of Christians by Muslim in Iraq.
